Homemade Chinese Food, Part 3 – Fried Rice



Here we are at the final part of my 3 part series on making Chinese takeout at home!  For those of you that missed the first two parts, Part 1 was Egg Drop Soup & Part 2 was Sweet & Sour Pork.


Part 3 is none other than Fried Rice.  You can’t have Chinese food without Fried Rice!!  Usually, when we get Chinese takeout, my whole family ends up pouring soy sauce all over the rice, but not when I make it at home.  That soy sauce bottle gets awfully lonely.  



This is another of those dishes that has a few steps to it, but don’t fret. They are extremely simple steps!  And the results when it is all over & done with? It is oh.my.gosh good.  You will find yourself serving the leftovers (IF there are any leftovers that is) with your eggs in the morning.  


You will need:

  • 1 1/3 cups white rice
  • 1 2/3 cup water
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 pound of bacon
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can green peas, drained
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • vegetable oil

Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan; add the rice & stir.  Reduce heat, cover, & simmer for 20 minutes.


Season the eggs with salt & pepper.  Heat a teaspoon of oil in a small pan & cook the eggs – flipping when you need to.  Remove them, let cool, & slice into thin slices.  I like to use a pizza cutter…works great!



Fry up your bacon until crispy, crumble, & set aside.  Reserve about 2 tablespoons of bacon grease in your skillet & toss in the cooked rice.  Mix in the bacon, peas, eggs, soy sauce, & green onions.  Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
